Put in place a programme to develop capabilities and capacity for effective partnership that should:

  1. Build specialist Māori infrastructure capabilities at the centre of government that can support agencies and Māori.
  2. Consolidate and enhance specific funding for the provision of technical support for iwi with infrastructure planning and delivery partnerships (agency or programme specific).
  3. Broker partnerships with Crown agencies and industry to create fixed-term secondment opportunities for iwi organisations.
  4. Leverage procurement opportunities for Māori across infrastructure policy, planning, delivery, maintenance and research.
